A BtBTtRRANEAX METAMORPHOSIS.
When Ringbrand opened hia eyea he
found himself lying on his back in
what appeared to be the bottom of a
well; at least, that was his second im-
pression. With the first gleams of re-
turning consciousness there was no
recollection of the events immediately
preceding his fall, and for a moment
lie had a vague idea that he had
Mumbled and hurt himself in the road,
and that the clouds had covered all but
the smull patch of sky directly over-
head where the stars were still visible.
Then memory came back, and he rt -
called the details of the capture up to
the sudden blank following the plunge
into the hole between the bowlders. A
Miarp twinge of pain bridged the in-
terval and reminded him that there
werfe two present and pressing sources
of discomfort in the gnarled log across
which he was lying and in the vice-like
pressure of the rope which still bound I
his arms to his sides. To wriggle out i
of the uncomfortable position was easy,
but loosening the roj>e was another mat- I
ter. The knot had been drawn tight |
by the jerk of his fall, and it was an
hour or more before he succeeded in |
working it around where it could be ,
reached; even when this was dom\ it
was only a lieginning, and the first faint
streaks of dawn were filtering through
the aperture overhead when he fiiiully
rose stiffly and s\\ ung his arms to start
the suspended circulation.
In a little w hile it was light enough
to enable him to see his surroundings, I
and he found that he was imprisoned in |
a crevice-cave much like the one he had ,
explored two days before. It occurred !
to him at once that it might ben con-
tinuation of the same cavern, or that
possibly he might be in the very |
chamber into which he had tried to j
penetrate; but this seemed unlikely, for
two reasons. One was that he could
not make the locality of the McXabb j
tunnel agree with the general direction :
of his wanderings of the night previous; j
and the other was even more eon vine- j
ing, for, while his cell terminated at one |
extremity in a narrow fissure like the 1
one in which he had lost the pick and ;
the lamp, he could not find the missing
articles, though he lost no time in mak-
ing a careful search for them. In do- j
ing this, however, he stumbled upon j
another discovery which was of niueh i
more immediate importance: reaching j
clown into the crannies of the fissure, j
his hand found a pool of water, a
drank gratefully, dipping up the cool
liquid by spoonfuls in his hollowed

hurled by some accident of wind or
lightning through the opening above,
and began to go over the events of the
past few* days, in the hope of finding
something to account for the mysteri-
ous attack and imprisonment. I11 this
effort lie racked his brain to little pur-
pose, and, after repeatedly scout ing t he
idea as absurd, he finally accepted the
conclusion that the llyuums had in
some manucr connected him with the
fortunes of their enemies, and had
taken prompt measures to deprive the
Latimers of a possible ally.
"If that's the case," he mused, speak-
ing aloud for t lie sake of t he com pan ion-
hip of his own voice, "what d
mean to do with me? If they had 1
wanted to kill me, they certainly had it
all their own way last night; a very '
small domestic cat would have mad^ a |
better resistance than I did. No. that 1
isn't it; they don't mean murder: they're |
only trying to get me out of the way 1
for aw hile. And the next thing is, lor
how long? Keeping in view the coin- |
fort ing conclusion that they don't ,
intend making away w ith ine, the ques- I
tion will answer itself in a few hours '
at the most, for they haven't given me j
anything to eat. Which reminds 1110
that I'm pretty hungry, now;" he looked
ruefully at his watch. "Tom Ludlow |
had his breakfast two hours ago. and
at the present moment. ! suppose, he's j
sitting in his office with the comfort- j
able under-thought that it'll be dinner-
time before long. Lucky fellow, not ]
to know what it is to sit in a crack in
the face of the earth, speculat ing 011 the j
doubtful possibilities of future meal
times. Well, I presume the next thing
is to decide whether or not I'm to sit 1
here and wait for some one to come and !
pull me out; and if I'm not, what's tin-
alternative? Let's have another look
at the resources."
After overhauling the rope and coil-
ing it beside the log. he searched his
pockets, but found nothing useful
therein, except a small penknife.
love under false pretense

peet ill the man of lierchoice. lie pushed
the tormenting thoughts a*idc, and ,
brought himself down with a jerk to 1
the present aud its demands. "I'm not
goiug to dispute with the weak-kneed ,
devil any more," he muttered; "the first J
thing to do is to get out of here, and j
then I'll leave it w ith her; if she honors j
me enough to make me her defender, i
I'll make a shift to fight her battles if !
1 have to hire some one to hold me j
wIdle I do it."
I'nder the inspiration of this conclu-
sion he went to work patiently and res-
olutely, trying the first plan that sug-
gested itself. Using his knife for a J
chisel, he attempted to cut niches for
hand and foot holds in the wall, jierse- j
vering until both blades of the mduII |
tool were worn dow n to useless
stumps. When the failure of the knife |
put mi end to the expedient, he exaui- j
ined the narrower part of the crevice to 1
see if he could not climb to the roof by
bracing himself from wall to wall.' As
it was reasonably evident that the cav-
ern had originally been nothing more
than an irregular crack in the sand-
stone, open at the top through its en-
tire length, and afterward gradually
covered in by slow accumulations of
I earth and debris interwoven with twigs
and grass roots, lie argued that it would
be comparatively easy to dig through
I this thin covering if be could obtain a
foothold near enough to the roof to en-
able him to attack it. To make the
most of his strength, he dragged the log
to the place selected for the experi
a ladder from which to begin tin
cent: ami, having braced it against one
of the walls, he took off his coat am*
shoes and made an attempt to work his
way up the desired vantage-ground.
The first trial was a failure, lie lost
his hold before he had ascended to
twice his height.and slid back to the
sandy floor of the crevice; but there!
was enough of a promise of success in 1
the undertaking to make him wear j
away the remainder of the day in re- j
peated endeavors, and to encourage him (
to try again and again, even after the
long abstinence from food had begun 1
to have its effect on his tired muscles !
and overstrained nerves. The final at- j
tempt, made just at dusk, carried him
to w it hill a few feet of the roof; but the |
darkness bafllcd him; he again lost his j
hold, and it was only by the utmost ex- 1
ertion of his failing strength that he
saved himself from falling heavily to j
the bottom of t lie cavern. As it was, he j
knocked the log down in his descent,
and, realizing that nothing could be
done without the help of daylight, Ik
dow n in the sand and tried to go ti
more keen and steady. Springing to
his feet, lie drew the colonel's revolve!
from his pocket and took careful ami
deliberate aim at the face behind tin I
yellow star of light ; his linger pressed j
the trigger, and the crash of a double
detonation filled the cavern. With th« j
flash and the report the light disap-
peared. and he felt a sting of pain in |
liis arm; he knew he was wounded, but
the hurt seemed only to augment the
violence of the tit of ferocity that had j
taken complete possession of him.
Lushing toward the point where the
light had disappeared, he wedged him
self into the crevice, grinding his teeth
iu impotent rage when he found that
he could not reach far enough to get
the range for a second shot.
After it was all over, he sat down
upon the log and examined his arm a*
well as he could by the sense of touch;
the wound was nothing but a severe
bruise, and he put his coat on again
with a sigh of relief. "I can't afford to
be disabled now," he muttered, "not till
I've given these villains their deserts;
the hardened brutes—to come here and
try to kill a man like a rat in a trap!"
Then it suddenly occurred to him
that this Hugh Ilingbrand, breathing
out threatellings against his persecu-
tors, wus quite a different person from
the miserable wretch who but a few
moments before had cowered iu terroi
at the sight of the mountaineer's rifle
"It's the most singular experience I
ever heard of," he mused. "It is, in-
